Notes that developments in psychology and neuroscience suggest a way to link the mental phenomenon of visual awareness with specific neural processes. Here, it is argued that the feed-forward activation of cells in any area of the brain is not sufficient to generate awareness, but that recurrent processing, mediated by horizontal and feedback connections is necessary. In linking awareness with its neural mechanisms, it is furthermore important to dissociate phenomenal awareness from visual attention or decision processes
